Was an occasional mountain biker then just slipped out of the sport about 8 years ago. Pretty much non of the trail centres existed then and I was bored of doing the same local round.

My epiphany moment was when we stayed at a hotel near Peebles and I tried Glentress in September 08. Even though I was on what must have been an 8 year old GT with dodgy rim brakes I thought the place was fantastic. I could not believe how much the bike technology and the trail centres had moved the sport on. I got myself a Commencal Combi Disc and visited Llandegla as often as I could after that.

In many ways a renewed obsession with what is, lets face it, a pretty expensive sport could not have come at a worse time because we had twin daughters born in July 08. However I get out when I can and the missus, bless her, lets me off the leash now and again. I have since upgraded to a Specialised Pitch Pro which is at the moment a far better bike than I am a rider but I am keen to try and catch up.
